Through the Dress Code, LRA wants to convey the dignity of your student’s education. it is not the intention of LRA to diminish or suppress a student’s personality. It is important that the learning environment is not distracting to students. Additionally, a dress code and appropriate grooming is reinforced as a “life skill.” LRA has deliberately and thoughtfully created a uniform code that is simple, affordable, easy to follow and enforce. Put simply, students will need to dress appropriately for their future jobs, and learning to dress with guidelines helps students better prepare for their future. Contrary to what most students think, uniforms actually help to develop individuality and personality. Freed from the shallow means of conforming to whatever is “in,” students can instead proclaim his/her presence through the more meaningful methods of character, actions, reputation and speech.

The LRA uniform policy involves both the school and the home. It is the responsibility of the student to make proper choices, which glorify Jesus Christ. It is the responsibility of the parents to help students make the right clothing decision. The teachers will enforce the dress code at LRA in a discreet and respectful manner. (Romans 12:2)

“We desire to give a good report and not be offensive in anything we do. This suggests living differently than the world.” 1 John 2:15

If a variation to the LRA Dress Code causes a distraction or is disruptive to the educational environment of the school, the final determination will be made by the individual school principal. Please contact the school office if you have any questions.
